    I never had to take English classes in university, period.

    @Sacred: It seems weird that you have to keep on doing classes in different subjects when you're at university. I've been sending some PhD applications to the US (because they give you so much money to do it) and everywhere seems to want me to study a foreign language if I get accepted. It just seems silly.

    Studying foreign languages is extremely beneficial for your brain though. Decreases chances of developing dementia and whatnot. As does learning instruments like piano. Hence why I do both right now.

    Get amongst it Zweed.

    Foreign languages are dumb. Everyone should just talk english. It'd make everything easier. For me.

    I assume this is satire since you're Dutch, but yes. This.

    I'll take dementia later for a little convenience now.

    The obvious ignorance is for comedic effect, especially since more people speak chinese-derived languages than any celtic/german/latin mixups.

    But it would be much easier if everyone was just forced to learn English everywhere.

    It's happening in Lithuania. Now you MUST take and pass an English language exam in order to graduate from hs.

    It's nothing compared to IELTS, but it's still something. You're supposed to be A2 (or A1, whichever is better) after you graduate

    In a digital age the power will go to the language which works best with keyboards.
